About Biomes: Identify and create the main biomes on Earth Virtual Lab Simulation
Biomes are literally all around you – you even live in one! In this simulation, you will learn about the concepts of Biodiversity, Biomes and Ecosystems, and you will also be able to locate the main biomes on Earth.
Learn about the different biomes on Earth
With our Biome Generator, you can freely experiment and adjust different parameters to create different biomes. Identify the main parameters that define the major biomes on Earth, such as climate, flora, fauna and geology, to understand where they are located.
Re-create Earth’s main biomes
Try as many times as you need to generate the different biomes. In our Biome Generator, you will be able to see how your choices will influence the final result. Made a mistake? No worries, try again!
Find the right match for each biome
Once you have built your own biome, you will be able to see how they match to the ones on Earth. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes – our friendly virtual assistant Dr. One can help and point you in the right direction.
